Review for Mayan Families, San Diego, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I loved working with Mayan Families, it's a wonderful grassroot oganisation,that does not have a big bureaucracy. I felt confident that the donations reached it's intended person or project. Most of the staff are indigenous, and were welcoming + helpful.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

seeing what a difference Mayan Families has made in so many people's lives.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

friendly, hard working and wonderful to get to know.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

transform the lives of mayan people in the highlands, by providing opportunities for education + employment and general self empowerment.

Ways to make it better...

there were more resources such as vehicles and office space to work with.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

to find consistent funding from large organizations.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I feel very lucky to have had this opportunity to experience life here in guatemala and to have done it with this great organization, Mayan Families.
